Animals Are a Depressed Girls Best Friend
It's been a rough week for me. I moved from another state three weeks back and have clinical depression which I refuse to be medicated for. Now that I am starting to get homesick my depression is much harder to control and dare I say I got to the danger zone of bad thoughts. I curled up on my floor twice crying uncontrollably and not knowing why, found it hard as hell to get out of bed or even eat. I moved here to be with my new band and though I do not regret it I do regret not getting onto zoloft before I left but my choice still stands to not medicate. I am just so thankful for my animals. I couldn't bring my cat with me but I did bring my rats with me and I got my fishy shortly after I unpacked and honestly they keep me going. I know when I start sobbing i can hold one of my ratty girls and know they will lick my tears away and make me feel better. Even my fish is starting to get in tune with something not being entierly right with me lately and sat at the front of his tank watching over me while I laid on the floor near the tank. I'm very depressed as of now but hope it gets better and know I'll make it through this because of them.
